OTR Engineered Solutions (OTR), the provider of tires, wheels, assemblies and services for OEMs and the aftermarket, reports that it plans to open a new facility near Monterrey, Mexico, later this year and into early 2024. The move is in response to the company’s commitment to support several of its OEM customers that are establishing operations in Mexico.
In the new Monterrey facility, OTR will supply an array of products and services including tire mounting, sequencing, just-in-time supply and warehousing on a local basis, operating as a leveraged resource and strategic partner for its customers.
“OTR’s facility will provide additional space and scalability to support OEM customers that have a presence in Mexico or are establishing one there,” states the company. “OTR has selected the Monterrey area due to its infrastructure, availability of skilled labor, manufacturing activity and proximity to customers. The location complements OTR’s global expansion plans. It also builds upon the momentum from OTR’s Greenfield site opened in Fort Worth, Texas, in 2021 to support customers in the robust Texas market.”
OTR notes that it might also add wheel-manufacturing capabilities in Mexico, bolstering capacity and local supply not only for customers in Mexico but also in the United States and Canada.
